Newest Galileo satellites enter next phase of operations
from Inside GNSS
Operational responsibility for two recently launched Galileo satellites has been handed over to the Galileo Control Center in Oberpfaffenhofen, Germany. Launched Sept. 11, Galileo spacecraft numbers 9 and 10 (fully operational capability satellites 5 and 6) passed their initial check-out in space, allowing control to be transferred for their integration into the existing constellation. The satellites were handed over on Sept. 19 and 20, respectively, to the GOC, managed by SpaceOpal.
